Gerhard Rienecker, Chief Executive Officer (CEO)

Founder and Chairman of the PASS Consulting Group Company Executive Board

Gerhard Rienecker founded PASS in 1981 after completing his information technology studies. The topic of his thesis became the start-up idea for PASS which has not lost any of its relevance to date: He had the vision of developing individual software at the price of standard software that is based on reusable components. It was the combination of know-how and a vision which enabled Rienecker to form PASS into a globally active consulting and software house with only one objective in mind: Understanding customers and helping them to be successful with quality and innovations that make sense on the technological level. Rienecker is publisher and co-author of numerous books, such as “Building the future with creativity”, “Change as a challenge and opportunity” as well as “Business goes virtual”.

Since the founding of PASS Consulting Group in 1981, we have been consulting our customers on how to optimize their business processes and systems. We focus predominantly on the banking and insurance sectors, on travel, logistics, public sector, industries, telecommunications and IT. Our employees work for a better digital world. They combine IT with expertise and they live up to their profession when it comes to consulting and executing complex IT projects. The PASS Research & Development team reviews and analyses trends, evaluates technologies and assesses them within the context of scientific studies.


The business idea
Your one stop solution warehouse. The idea for individual software development at the price of standard software emerged from the thesis "Use of micro computers in operational organization" written by Gerhard Rienecker, founder of PASS. It was the corner stone for PASS Consulting Group.

1981 - 1983

The business concept takes shape, followed by initial projects and PC solutions for customers.


Success and growth lead to geographical and staffing expansion within Germany. The PASS Consulting Center Frankfurt opens its doors. This will also be the location for the PASS Academy which offers a wide range of internal and external employee and customer training programs. PASS becomes a regular host for community events in these spacious premises.


PASS EDV-Beratung is renamed to PASS IT-Consulting Group. Using an english title in Germany emphasizes that PASS is increasingly switching to large accounts and thus to the international arena.

1996 - 1999

The international customer base of PASS keeps growing with new customers especially in the US. The founding of PASS Consulting Corporation with branches in New York and Miami is the logical consequence of this development. At the same time, the company stays on expansion course in Germany opening more branches in Munich, Stuttgart, Düsseldorf and Hamburg.

Software development centers are founded in Hyderabad, India and Würzburg, Germany.


PASS IT-Consulting Group becomes PASS Consulting Group.
The influence of IT on the business processes becomes obvious more and more. IT and management topics really cannot be separated from one another, which is why PASS expands their portfolio by the traditional business consulting. In order to also acknowledge this development externally, the name has again been changed by this small yet significant detail.


The branch concept makes room for a new strategy. PASS is the initiator of Global Consulting Alliance (GCA), a worldwide IT company network. The associated partners offer GCA services in their respective home markets. This way, GCA is able to provide one face to the customer anywhere in the world.


GCA Germany is launched, leading to a continuous increase of the partner network in Germany.


New profile
PASS opts for a new presentation of the entire service portfolio in order to present their entire IT and consulting skills to the market in a transparent way. The new profile basically consists of the four elements:

  • Research
  • Project
  • Software
  • Service


PASS has been on a quality mission with the title "Good to great". The objective is to achieve perfection in customer orientation, organization and leadership based upon expertise and values. These values include honesty, respect, responsibility and independence.

2017 - present

Our mission is to achieve a better digital world. By means of modern technologies we create innovative improvements for our customers. These result in IT-solutions as well as IT-products.
